Getting the Copyright Right

Ever notice how many websites have outdated copyrights at the bottom of the page?

That diminishes my trust in the website.

  • The content and wisdom they share
  • Is the project abandoned??
  • If I buy with them today will they be around to provide support

Keeping the copyright up to date is a small indicator of care and involvement.

Here is an example from one of my favorite writing tools: Hemingway App. Guys, are you still doing this or what? I took these screenshots from various parts of their website on 04-09-2020:

Out of date copyrights from Hemingway App’s website

I am not above forgetting to update my copyright - it is easy to overlook and I have overlooked it in the past.

There are tools to avoiding this though. With a little bit of javascript, you can the copyright date, up to date.

Update your footer is easy and free to make sure you are sending all the right signals to your website visitors.
